    Should I buy these badboyz? Need a pair of light grey jeans, the 3Sixteens are charcoal and too dark.

    palladiums are supposed to be rugged, they should fit in with what you need them for.
    for those who know of klaxon howl, matt had a vintage pair that the Israeli army wore...cool stuff.

    in other boot news: ive recently purchased a pair of rag and bone mallory boots in blk nubuck, i like everything about them except that they are made in china. i dislike that oki-ni failed to pint it out, and forward stated that they are made in the usa, its more of a dislike on principal than the fact that they are made in china.
    needless to say, i am looking for a replacement:

    i would need something suitable for a boot tuck with jeans and trousers. the butteros would do the trick for both in my opinion but ive never had a pair and heard they run big. i wear a 42 in MMM should i get a 41. iirc "shoebox" wears a 42 in mmm and got a 40 in buttero? any input would be great.

    yeah nb is great, maybe too high of a shaft for me?
    mj wouldnt accommodate a boot tuck=out of picture
    i really like the butteros, they remind me of my rag and bone.
    ndcs are very aggressive, black pants/jeans with brown boots?

    i also like these kva, but this is a diff type of boot(ie not military)

    I love those MJs, though the studded ones are purtier

    I just don't think they look aggressive enough for a combat boot, and while I have nothing against velcro in theory, again it seems out of place on that particular style.

    It's a really sleek boot, reminds of Dior Homme (could be the brother of that jodhpur-ish strap boot from this season)

    Butteros and NDC's are both excellent. I would buy the NDC's but I need a black boot more than a brown one right now. Don't like the KVA's much at all. I need a black boot myself and am pondering GellerxCP boot, but feel like I could hold out for something better... if they drop on sale I guess I'll kop though.

    Wouldn't I be a 44 in those? Don't CP's boots fit a bit big? I'm normally a 44.5 or so, I'm currently wearing 44 MMM boots. Revolve has them in 44 but they're not on sale. If they do go on sale though I'll probably kop with additional discount.

    Oh. Well in that case, there are 4 pairs of mmm side-zips in 44 on ebay right now, speaking of.

    Three. I'm considering these but like I say I need something black and more like those butteros,

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Martin-Margiela-...item53e4861385

    These are too much money and I don't really like the seams, the cap or the low sole anyway,

    http://cgi.ebay.com/New-MARTIN-MARGI...item3a60b136b0

    And these... well I'm wearing white pained MMM side zips I don't need a leather version.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Maison-Martin-Ma...item2c56312c37

    Is there a 4th somewhere?


    I should say the ones I'm wearing fit but they are pretty tight. Side to side they're okay, but in terms of volume they pinch a bit. Nothing too uncomfortable though and will break in. So, I would call myself a 44.5 in Margiela even though that size doesn't exist.

    In my imagination there were a pair of black side-zips, but apparently that was false.
